    Background: The People's Republic of China is holding a two-week economic and trade fair in Accra, Ghana. The exhibition was opened on Friday (6 September) by Ghana's Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Lieutenant-Colonel Kwame Baah.

    More than 2,300 items are on display in the exhibition which is being held at the Trade Fair site in the Ghanaian capital.

    The goods on display range from agricultural machinery to fine glass and chinaware.

    During the opening ceremony Lt.-Colonel Baah told the 300 guests that the value of Ghana's exports to China rose from 2.4 million cedis (just under GBP 1 million) in 1972 to 7.3 million cedis (GBP 2.6 million) in 1973. In the same period the value of imports more than doubled from 4.7 million cedis (GBP 1.8 million) to 9.3 million cedis (GBP 3.4 million).

    The exhibition is the second from the People's Republic of China to be held in Ghana. The first was 13 years ago.
